    My friend gave me his "broken" iPod Touch that will not do anything unless it is connected to power. It was working a few days back, however.

    When you connect it to power, you get this screen [​IMG]. It does not boot up, and it just stays on that screen forever.

    And if you unplug it, it goes completely dead as if there was no battery installed.

    Right now I've had it sitting on the charger for hours, but its still on the "dead battery charging" screen.
    If I hold the home + sleep/wake button, it just turns off, and then returns to the picture posted above.

    Does anyone have any idea how to get this working? I'm thinking its a dead battery. Otherwise it'll be used for drop testing lol. :eek: :D
    P.S. The iPod is out of warranty so going to Apple wouldn't be an option. I'm not really looking to spend money towards this, but if I get it to work, then great.

    I think this happened to my old iPod Touch (1G) and it fixed itself by sitting on the charger for a while but I don't remember.

    Could it be that it just needs a new battery?

    Like, getting the battery replaced by apple?

    Sounds good but its out of warranty so it would probably cost $99 for a replacement. :(
